"Mary Ann Roser was my editor and advisor in publishing 'Phantom in the Family, Tracking Down My Runaway Father.' She went far beyond the usually accepted expectations of a book editor, which she also met to perfection. She asked key questions that pushed me to consider including events and feelings … and that vastly improved my initial product. Writers satisfied with their manuscript have not yet had the benefit Mary Ann’s critique and advice."
"Mary Ann Roser brings to every project a curiosity, an intelligence and a sharp willingness to question that marked her successful career as a newspaper reporter, especially with the often complex world of health and medicine. Her attention to detail and an insistence on thoroughly understanding a subject before writing about it meant that she could, and did, write authoritatively and yet in a way that non-experts could understand. She got it right, and made it clear."
"Mary Ann Roser was among the strongest reporters at the Austin American-Statesman during my 13 years as editor. She excelled at digging out information, assessing its importance, organizing content and writing in a clear, coherent and lively style. She became a skilled and expert reporter in higher education and then health care and medicine."
"Mary Ann Roser edited my book, 'Letters from the Pit: Stories of a Physician’s Odyssey in Emergency Medicine.' I found her work of high value and her contributions resulted in a better book with rave reviews. She improved flow, readability and content. I offer my highest recommendation of her work. "
"Mary Ann Roser has the ability to take complex issues and make them accessible and meaningful for the general public. She is thorough, accurate and extremely diligent; she's a real pro.”
"Aside from being a friendly person, Mary Ann has been the most knowledgeable – and fair – reporter about health care in our region. It was so helpful and time-saving not having to ‘educate’ her about the basics of a very complex topic. I long admired her reporting."
